Suspect Arrested for Negligent Homicide after Killing His Girlfriend
 
Posted: 10/16/2013 12:00 AM
 
On Monday, October 14th, 2013 at 6:54 p.m. the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 call reporting an accidental shooting at “Red Rock Feeding” located at 35301 S. Hollis Road. The victim in the case was a 19-year-old female.
 
Deputies and medical personnel arrived on scene within minutes of the call being received. The 19-year-old female victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.
 
PCSO Homicide Detectives responded and took over the investigation.
 
Ramiro Delcid (age 20 of Red Rock) told detectives he was sitting in his company work truck with his girlfriend. He unloaded his .38 caliber pistol and then pointed it at his girlfriend in an attempt to scare her. He pulled the trigger thinking the gun was unloaded but one bullet had remained in the gun. The bullet when fired struck his girlfriend in the chest and killed her. After he shot her, he called 9-1-1.
 
Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, “This case is a tragic reminder of how quickly a life can be taken by those who handle firearms irresponsibly. Ramiro took the life of his girlfriend because he thought it would be funny to scare her with a gun. His poor judgment and decision making took the life of this young woman with her entire life ahead.”
 
Ramiro Delcid was booked into the Pinal County Jail for Negligent Homicide.
